How to Prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) in Athletes and Traveling Sports Teams (updated 5/3/2014)

Introduction

DVT Gary Moller Nutrition health fitness sports lifestyle educationDeep vein thrombosis (DVT, phlebitis) among apparently healthy men and women is disturbingly common. I will see as many as two cases per month.

Example:
Former national class runner, now in early 60's, developed a calf strain after a short run. This coincided with a journey by car to Auckland and back to Wellington.

He had booked in with me for some deep tissue massage of the injured calf.

He struggled into the office and had a pale complexion and a hint of purple on the lips. Since there was no history of an actual injury to the ankle I concentrated on assessing his pulses, blood pressure and circulation. On the basis of what I found, I referred him immediately to his doctor who immediately referred him to the hospital where it was confirmed he was suffering from blood clots in his leg.

Correcting Foot Pronation (collapsing arches) with Corrective Exercise (Updated)

Medial Ankle Pain Following a Lateral Ankle Inversion Injury

"I am from Korea and I used to be college basketball player but recently moved to U.S. I had superior athlete body shape before I injured my ankle last November. It was eversion sprain(deltoid ligament), I usually have multiple inversion sprain during practice or game but this one was pretty severe so I decided to use crutches. I lost noticible muscle on lower leg.

After this incident I went to several different doctors but they all said it's just grade 3 sprain but they think it's fine. I had constant pain inside my ankle and my foot arch dropped dramatically.

These days my achilles hurts but doctors said it's just probably inflammed...

So I started not trusting doctors but when I did web research I thought mine was kind of posterior tibial tendon dysfunction but after I read your strengthining foot I thought that would be my case.

Now my knee started hurting too...

I'm dying to get back to court but how much pain can I ignore and push?"
